It is a beautiful spring day in Georgia,
and it has been freezing cold for the past few days, so the fact that I had arranged to paint at my cousins new home today was perfect!
We were able to open all the windows and enjoy the lovely day.
When I was growing up my cousins lived only 20 minutes away in a quaint neighborhood, it was practically my second home for years.
Then through the years and different life circumstances they no longer had a family home in the quaint little neighborhood,
One of my cousins has moved back in with her family of four :)
It was quite a surreal feeling driving back into that neighborhood after 20 years to paint her older sons room.
Here is the room before, a beautiful green color,
but since this room was going to belong to a 4 year old sweet little boy that had a different color in his previous home, this just wasn't going to work!
So I got busy, taping off the room, one of my favorite parts of a paint job...
except when it comes to a popcorn ceiling...
This is when my daughter called me and asked when I would be home.....
So I texted her a photo of my progress,
then she texted back and asked which one was the new color?
Such a good question :)
Here it is after the first coat of paint!! SO much brighter already
and it matches the bedspread better too!!
This adorable little alcove is perfect for a little bookshelf and that door leads to an attic space that will one day become a FANTASTIC playroom for two sweet little boys
AND cousins to play in!!!!
Although it was a little difficult to put the tape on the ceiling it made for a beautiful finished job!!!
Here it is after THREE coats of paint, I LOVE it!!!!! It is so fresh and clean!!!
I am looking forward to seeing how she puts it all together over the years!
